Mahallat

 

Mahallat (Persian: محلات, also Romanized as Maḩallāt; also known as Mahallāt Bāla and Maḩallāt-e Bālā)[1] is a city in and the capital of Mahallat County, Markazi Province, Iran.

In ancient times it was an important location for Zoroastrianism. It has a cold climate, and strong winds during spring and summer. The city is one of the major producers and exporters of flowers in Iran. Every September the city holds a flower festival. In addition, the area surrounding the city is rich with travertine deposits, which are refined into tiles in nearby factories.

There are remains of Hellenistic architecture from Alexander the Great's time in Mahallat as well as fire temple ruins back from the Zoroastrianism era. The city is famous for a large warm water spring flowing from mountains in North into the plain areas of South used for agriculture as well as the urban water supply. There are also hotsprings not so far from the city which has been a source of local tourism since old times due to its assumed medical benefits. Dialect spoken in Mahallat is a version of bigger branch of dialects spoken in central Iran (Yazd, Isfahan, Khonsar) with several words having an eye-catching connection to old Persian.

Interestingly, MAHAL (MAHALLAT) rugs and carpets are found with both tribal and curvilinear motifs. This attribute derives from the unique position of the city of MAHALLAT, which is between the cities of ARAK and Delijan, on the path of the tribal people of southern IRAN.
